I came in with multiple complaints to include neck pain, ear pain, jaw pain and popping, a bite that was somewhat mal-aligned, headaches. Severe hip pain happened frequently due to the inability to sleep on my back, but rather my sides. This was for fear of chipping my front teeth again in my sleep, which had happened before. Back sleeping also partially obstructed my breathing. To sum things up, 80-85 % of my complaints are relieved. Back sleeping is easy, breathing is easy, hip pain is gone. No more eating ibuprofen and Tylenol like candy. My bite is correct. Headaches and jaw and neck pains are relieved. Both doctors and all their staff are very helpful. At first I was concerned about the price of the appliance. However it is totally totally worth it!!!!!! The payment choices are flexible and manageable. You will never regret this treatment and it comes highly recommended by this client.

Since wearing the device my jaws are not popping, the ear aches I was having have improved significantly (almost non existent). My jaws are not sore when I wake up of a morning and I have not had a headache in the past few weeks. I wish I had been told about this device when it first came out.

At my first appointment with Dr Urbanek, I was experiencing migraines and ear pain to the point that I was tired of dealing with it. Barely able to function some days. Since getting the mouth splint, I have had minimal headaches and am able to live again without the severe pain. Thank you for helping me get my life back!

I have suffered with pain in my left jaw for over 20 years now. I have had a couple of dentists make me a retainer because they said I would grind my teeth when I was sleeping. It barely helped at all. In 2022 the pain became so bad. When I would open my jaw would lock up and it was so painful to open my mouth. Then I had pain run down my left shoulder into my hand. I would drop anything I touched. I went to physical therapy and it barely helped. It was time consuming and costly. Finally I went to the dentist and told him I could not deal with it anymore. He referred me to a TMJ. He made me a special device and it changed everything. I just wear it when I sleep and the pain has been reduced dramatically . Please refer patients with jaw pain to a specialist so they don’t have to continue to suffer.

As a singer it was challenging to struggle for years with headaches, neck pain, jaw fatigue, upper back pain, locked jaw, ringing in my ears, trouble opening my jaw wide enough to sing, arm numbness, along with a whole list of other symptoms. It was even a challenge with work to wear headphones or even glasses because they would push on my jaw joints and I’d have dizzy spells and severe pain. I took different medications and saw different doctors according to my symptoms but nothing was diagnosed. It wasn’t until my dentist recommended Dr.Urbaneck that real change happened. He showed me how all those symptoms over the last 25 plus years were due to TMJ and with his devise I could find relief. In the process he also had my see Dr. Rice to correct my jaw alignment with braces. He knew exactly how to help and provided everything I needed to recover. I went from being on Aleve several times a week and massive medical issues as well as medical bills to now 95% of my symptoms are gone. I can sing and record for hours with no difficulty. It’s a life changer for me as a recording artist! I wish everyone knew about this issue and the Urbanek device so they could get the proper care the first time and save thousands of dollars on testing that is unnecessary.

When I came to see Dr. Urbina, I had been having migraines for 40 years. I had been going to a pain clinic for 9 years and had been having the nerves in my neck burned yearly. In March 2022, the pain Doctor sent me to Dr Urbina. I decided to try the mouth piece, which I wore 24/7 for 3 months. After that amount of time, I wear only at night. My migraines have greatly improved, I get a headache every now and then, but have not had a migraine.

I came to Dr Urbanek to address horrible TMJ issues in my jaw including headaches and constant grinding. Dr Urbanek is very knowledgeable and assertive with his instructions on treating TMJ. As soon as I began to trust the process and Dr Urbanek, my symptoms began to diminish. I can’t give a 5 star rating because I still have the clicking, but the headaches have subsided. I will always be a grinder but I’m thankful for my mouth guard, and being made aware of how I constantly worked my mouth and jaw.

When I came to Dr Urbanek, I had many symptoms including muscle pain in my face, ringing in my ears and tingling in my arms and hands. So far the splint device has been amazing at reducing many of my symptoms . I was relieved that surgery would not be necessary. I would recommend this procedure for anyone with TMJ issues.

I came in with extreme jaw pain and jaw locking and I had no idea what TMJ was. I was diagnosed with it and the doctor helped me to understand my symptoms and how to use the device. I feel like my symptoms overall have gotten way better and my jaw pain has gone away for the most part. The doctor did a great job is helping me through this.

I have struggled with headaches and neck pain for over 30 years. I just assumed that I was a person who would always struggle with these issues. About 4 months ago, I began having tooth sensitivity, jaw pain, and ear pain. I was taking Motrin several times a day just to provide some relief from the pain. I saw my dentist and my PCP and had a CT scan done in an attempt to diagnose my problem, but to no avail. I was told my symptoms were not indicative of TMJ disease. My PCP referred me to Dr. Urbanek because we were at a complete loss for a definitive diagnosis. I found out rather quickly during my initial consultation with Dr. Urbanek that I did indeed have TMJ disease. I have now been wearing the TMJ splint for 3 weeks and have experienced complete resolution of all of my symptoms. The hardest part of this whole process has been finding the provider who could correctly diagnose and treat my symptoms. Thanks much to Dr. Urbanek for his wisdom in diagnosing, treating, and educating people on TMJ.

Our Latest Patient Testimonial

When I came here for my first appointment I was very impressed, the amount of knowledge Doctor Urbina had about TMJ and the way he explained what was happening was very helpful. When i first came in I could hardly open my mouth to take a bite of food, or even sometimes just talk without it locking or popping. Using this device was something I definitely had to get used to. I talked with a bad lisp for the first couple of weeks, but it only took a short time for my mouth to adjust. Before using the device I did not understand the extent of my symptoms until I caught myself not wearing it for a few days. I could feel the pressure I used to clench my teeth together and the soreness it caused. I am close to coming up on the year mark of having it and it has helped my jaw tremendously. I can finally eat whatever I want and talk just fine without it affecting me. I also tried seeing a chiropractor who said he could get the popping and clicking to go away, however after a few months of trying that I stopped my appointments because they were doing no good and just relied on the device itself. I believe that was definitely the best decision. I would recommend this to anyone who is having jaw pain, it has definitely helped in the best way!

Patient Success Stories


Many people who experience unexplained headaches, earaches, neck pain, jaw pain, vertigo or shoulder/arm pain do not realize that these symptoms are due to the inflammation in their JAW JOINT resulting in Temporomandibular Joint Disorders.

“I’ve experienced chronic ear pain for 30 years. Although I do have a history of sinus and ear infections, my ear pain began to worsen to the point of not being able to sleep at night. I would wake up with pain so bad that it affected my hearing. I experienced ringing in my ears. Eventually, I found a new ENT who sent me to Dr. Urbanek. After three months my symptoms are 95% alleviated. I cannot say enough about his jaw splint and what it has done for the quality of my life.” L.A.D.
